Was 1987's 'RoboCop' intended to be a completely symmetrical film?

Many movies follow the familiar three-act structure, but Paul Verhoeven's 1987 classic RoboCop may have gone further than that. With only one exception, argues The Deja Reviewer, the film is completely symmetrical from beginning to end. From the solitary "RoboCop" title and closing credits, to the placement of action sequences, to the way the film reveals and removes its villains from the picture, practically every scene seems to have been intended to beautifully balance out an equation. You can find out just how those scenes match up at our source link below.
